Description

With the CAT S60 you will get a 4.7” HD display with Gorilla Glass 4 protection, wet fingers and glove touch support, as well as a Snapdragon 617 chipset to light it up. When it comes to memory, the Cat S60 ships with 3 GB RAM and 32 GB of internal storage. The rear camera is 13 MP with dual LED flash, and a 5 MP selfie snapper adorns the front. All that jazz runs on Android Marshmallow, and is backed by a hefty 3800 mAh battery, which at this screen resolution should have the phone going for a while.
